If it can take advantage of up-to-the-minute information from Waze users, or other vehicles, or traffic helicopters for that matter, so much the better. But that is mostly just doing navigation better.


Let’s go back to the example of a detour around a construction area thrown up this morning. How is an AI car that lacks timely data input going to know this? Only way I can think of, is it reads the "Detour" sign and follows it, and hope each turn on the detour is clearly signed (they often aren’t). But after four years of intensive AI development, Tesla cars still can’t read signs. Good luck "just" getting to work and back in that situation.

I like Tesla, I own an M3. But it still doesn’t know the speed limit in my neighborhood, which has been clearly signed and unchanged for at least five years that I can recall. Count me as not impressed with the rate of AI (non-)learning.
